Downtown Revitalization Project Update

Over the course of the past two years, the City has been designing and discussing a revitalization project for the downtown. A survey was posted on social media (results here) as well as mailed to every home in Genoa (results here), and completed a group of downtown businesses and property owners (results here). With the public’s feedback, the design of the project was finalized and submitted to IDOT for approval. Bids for the project were opened in October 2023 and bid award is scheduled for November 2023.
